Reverse Flash In Various Forms

Reverse Flash, for those of you who don’t know him, ‘Eobard Thawne’… He really is basically that thorn that just keeps coming back for more, no matter how many times you try to destroy him… And trust me when I say that the Flash has been trying for a long time to end his reign of tyranny!

With the growing success  of the Arrowverse, we have begun to see the Reverse Flash in all of those TV series… But Eobard actually got his start when he was trapped in the past and needed the help of his most hated enemy, ‘The Flash’.

Well the problem with that is that he was stuck 15 years in the past! So what he does is waits, bides his time, and even turns himself in to Dr. Harrison Wells, and with the help of the S.T.A.R. Labs team, helps Barry become the fastest man alive… But when it comes time for the inevitable reveal… He is taken out… Only to become a periodic recurrung character through out the multiverse!

Now that was on TV!

In comics he is something else… He was a speedster from the future that at one time or another had actually admired the scarlet speedster… But as time went on, that changed… And he ended up deciding to become the reverse of everything that Barry Allen is!

He would go so far as to take one of the original Flash’s suits and re-dying it so that it quite literally color wise was opposite of the Flash… (I think that due to the similarities in the TV series, and the comics, that this might be why the uniform worn by the Flash and Reverse Flash are so similiar.)

Now I honestly don’t know to much about the animated side of Reverse Flash, except that in one movie, it does appear that Reverse Flash is also called, ‘Zoom’.

Reverse Flash… He will always be an interesting character, and one of Barry’s most intense villains that he will fight as the Scarlett Speedster, and always will be, but I thought that I would give you a little background about this villain because I mean lets be honest, he is pretty awesome!
